Summer To Do List

At the beginning of the summer Cali and her friend Kat made quite an extensive To Do list - fun activities they wanted to do together.

I posted the entire list over on my other blog. You can read their To Do list here.

If any of you knew Jim as a teenager you will see that Cali takes after her father more than her mother in some of her interests!!

This week she and Kat have been busy finishing up their list before Kat heads to Germany to nanny next week.

I came home from a meeting the other night to a fresh batch of banana ice cream - yum. Cross making ice cream off the list

We finally got some rain this week so they went ice blocking last night and crossed that one off the list.

The backyard campout got rained out though and four teenage girls ended up sleeping in our King size bed while Jim and I slept in Tessa's Queen.

They crossed rollerskating off the list too. Dressing up like total crazy people was not on the list but they did it any way.
I take no responsibility for Cali's fashion sense!!
Yes, they actually went out in public like this - and it wasn't Halloween!!
Not only did they go to the roller rink but they also went to Red Robin dressed up!!
Thanks to Tina and Dave Appel they were able to cross boating off their list too..
Tessa and Cali spent two days reading and studying for their boater's permit so they could drive their own jet ski. They both passed - danger!!

Yes, Tessa was the designated driver and she doesn't even have a regular driver's license yet!!
Both girls were incredibly stiff and sore the next morning and walked around like old women all day moaning and groaning!
There are a few things still on the list. They are running out of time so a few of the things may get left undone. Let's hope skinny dipping is one of them!!

Tess was the designated driver? So I guess getting wasted was also ont their list?
